Eskom: Request for government (taxpayers) to take over R100 billion debt

According to Jabu Mabuza, Eskom does not have a medium or long term plan to deal with power provision and debt. There is now a request for government (taxpayers) to take over R100 billion of the total R419 billion debt.

Pravin Gordhan says that debt repayment restructuring in 2019 will addresses this.

Mabuza states that mechanical installations are always subject to wear and tear but maintenance is not done at power stations and Gordhan promised that there were “plans” to prevent a “black” Christmas.

Gordhan also put an end to the leave of Eskom senior managers as they should be available to optimize the country’s power supply.
